When I moved from Germany to Italy more than 20 years ago one of the things I was missing was buttermilk.
I'm so glad I found out about CulturesForHealth, because now I can have buttermilk every day, I decide the quality of the milk, I decide how much I make.
And the TASTE is absolutely awesome!!!
Thank you so much!

Best Buttermilk Culture!!

New to dairy cultures - easy and great results.

Re-using the culture works

I'm new to dairy culturing so not much to comment. This product is presented as having the capacity to propagate, and having made 4 or 5 successive cultures using raw milk and using the former batch to activate, it is still making buttermilk.

Buttermilk Bread

Buttermilk makes rich delicious bread. A challenge at high altitude, 6000 feet. I use sourdough starter with the buttermilk and the dough cycle in my bread maker. Crispy crust with a soft center.

Easy to Make

This is my first try at making buttermilk. I was making milk kefir prior to purchasing this product, but it got to be too time consuming. Now i just add a little saved buttermilk to a fresh quart of milk and it's done in a few hours time. I love the ease taste of this buttermilk. I drink about 1/2 cup daily.
